correct...when you open it up and the regular air filter is on the left (while looking at the engine from the front), the secondary is the grey looking one on the right that is attached to the inside of the box.

alright, cause i took that hose off that goes all the way to the fender, and i looked through it and didnt see any filter so i put it back on cause it didnt look right.

so i take the main filter out, unplug the MAF sensor and pull the charcoal filter out?

the way i did it, i didnt remove the MAF. i just cut a slit in the filter big enough to grip it and pulled it out. others have simple taken a small bit and drilled out the plastic welds....or even used a screwdriver and hammer to pop them out.

The 2.7's have a better chance of gaining anything from that mod.

Placebo. Me and Gaget both tested this, and found nothing.

I love the "i felt quicker throttle response" ~ whatever stuff on all these mods. I had a guy at work telling me he was getting 28 mpg and +35 hp in his crew cab frontier because he had a magnaflow and k&N. "you can really feel it"... yea.. I can feel the drone of his exhaust in my office when he pulls in. Sounds like a walrus humping.

Dude leave it in there. It won't help you.. 2.7, 4.0 either way its not gonna make a difference other then maybe a little sound. Its only there to keep engine gases from escaping into your garage after your turn your engine off. It doesn't restrict shit!

If your going to do it make sure you remove the whole filter box out of the truck so that you do not drop any plastic particals into the intake. The secondary filter is held in with plastic spot welds. You dont have to drill them, Just take a flat blade screwdriver and work it around the edges of the filter popping them as you go. I removed mine I have a 2.7ltr It may have made a very small difference although I have heard in the 6cyl engines it not even worth it.

Mental horsepower, reminds me of the days in H/S when we borrowed dad's 66 Chevy with the 396 and would flip the air cleaner lid to get 'that sound' and then go cruisin'.
